This spring, help us provide caregiver relief by donating to the CaregiverRx Matching Gift Campaign.
Ground Effects Ltd. of Windsor, ON has pledged $50,000 to the Alzheimer Society of Windsor & Essex County if generous donors like you can help us raise $50,000 by June 30, 2018.
That’s $100,000 to support local programs and services!
Caring for someone with dementia is a job that comes without breaks, time off, or pay. Caregiving means juggling multiple appointments and responsibilities. Caregivers put their needs last and often forget about themselves entirely. Without the care and rest they need, caregivers are at risk of increased stress, health problems, and eventually, burnout.
That means your donation today will go twice as far.
$24 provides one day in Day Away; today’s donation will double to 2 days
$116 provides two shifts of respite care; today’s donation will double to 4 shifts
$300 gives 16 hrs. of one-on-one support; today’s donation will double those hours
Will you show your support for caregivers when it can count twice as much?
Right now, it is estimated that over 564,000 Canadians are living with dementia. In 15 years, that number will increase by 66% to 937,000. Currently, there are over 7,840 individuals in Windsor and Essex County diagnosed with dementia and that number is steadily climbing. You can help families get the support they need.
The Matching Gift Campaign begins April 1, 2018 - June 30, 2018.
Thank you for your support
